Kareena glad she did ‘Veere Di Wedding’

Mumbai– Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says she is happy that she did “Veere Di Wedding”, a coming-of-age story about four female friends.

“This film is quite different from what I have done previously. While the movies I have acted in had a male lead, this story revolves around four girls who are at different stages in their lives and their friendship,” Kareena said in a statement.

“From the moment I read the script, I wanted to be a part of the film. I am so glad we made a movie based on friendship like this. ‘Veere Di Wedding’ is a movie that everyone can enjoy with the entire family. There is something for everyone in it,” she added.

Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the film is about the lives of four friends who deal with the trials and tribulations regarding family acceptance, marriage and societal perceptions in the modern-day world.

Set aside apprehensions when you commit to a project: Big B

Mumbai– Superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan underwent rigorous action training and learnt sword fighting for the upcoming film “Thugs Of Hindostan”. The senior actor says it’s best to put aside apprehensions when one commits to a project.

The high-on-action film is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya.

“Much before we actually went through these sequences, Viktor (Acharya) and Adi (producer Aditya Chopra) had said, ‘Maybe you should train a bit’. So, we were doing a lot of sword moments in the gym. There is a lot of action, whether it is jumping off a building, doing summersaults, diving, climbing up. These were all done live,” Amitabh, who plays the role of Khudabaksh in the movie, said in a statement.

“If you have committed yourself to a project then I guess you have to put aside all apprehensions and challenges and do what has been asked,” added the 76-year-old.

Aamir said: “Just before I did ‘Thugs…’, I did ‘Dangal’. Two of us (Fatima and I) were training for a year and half in wrestling, and in wrestling, the stance is very low. You bend at the waist and you stand as low as possible. So instinctively, I use to stand low, so they had to try and get that out of me.”

However, he said, the training gave Fatima and him “a good foundation” for a movie like “Thugs of Hindostan”, which also features Katrina Kaif.

“Also, this is the second time that my song will feature in a Saif Ali Khan-starrer,” she added.

My only focus is acting: Tejasswi

Mumbai– Actress Tejasswi Prakash says her only focus right now is acting.

“The people who praise you are the same people who pull you down. Hence, I do not let the comments (good or bad) get to my heart. And for this very reason, I am not very active on any social media platform. I never made a Twitter account. I try to stay away from negativity,” Tejasswi said in a statement.

“My only focus is acting and as an actor, one needs to believe in one’s own self and try not to get affected by what people have to say,” she added.

She will be soon seen as Princess Uruvi in the show “KarnSangini”. It will premiere on StarPlus on October 22.
